Injured by Dangerous Drugs? Contact Graves McLain for a Free Consultation.
We all depend on pharmaceutical companies to develop medications that will help treat medical conditions, serious diseases, and injury. And we also depend on the FDA to make sure that all drugs being brought to the market are as safe as possible. But when medications cause serious side effects and extreme adverse reactions to unsuspecting patients, it may be time for an experienced lawyer to help.
Tragically, many innocent victims suffer the consequences of defective drugs every year in the United States.
It is the job of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to thoroughly test and screen all new medications that enter the market, but unfortunately, not all medical devices or pharmaceutical companies follow the FDA’s strict regulations. Or the drugs are put through a "Fast Track" process at the FDA, which unfortunately relies heavily on the drug company to validate the success and safety of the drug, as opposed to a third party that has nothing to gain.
Sometimes, big pharma companies place profits before people, over the safety of their customers, and may fail to disclose important information about potential risks and dangers associated with their products.
There are hundreds of thousands of lawsuits filed every year in the U.S against manufacturers of defective drugs.
Some drugs that have caused serious or even fatal side effects in patients include:
The manufacturers responsible for creating and marketing these harmful products must be held accountable for their actions. Let the experienced, compassionate lawyers of Graves McLain fight to secure the compensation you deserve for suffering through the severe side effects of dangerous prescription medication.
Drug manufacturers have a responsibility to properly warn consumers about the potential risks associated with using their product. If a manufacturer fails to disclose the potentially harmful side effects of a medication, they may be found liable for the harm and injuries their product caused.
